Arsenal legend, Paul Merson, has predicted some of this weekend’s English Premier League, EPL, games.
Chelsea will face Leicester City in an away Premier League fixture on Saturday afternoon at the King Power Stadium.
Watford will host Manchester United at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening.
Liverpool will tackle Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday evening, while Man City will face Everton on Sunday at Etihad.
Providing his predictions, Merson told Sportskeeda, “I’m going to go for a Chelsea win. They were by far the better team against Burnley but weren’t ruthless enough in front of goal. The Premier League will come back and bite you in the backside if you don’t take your chances and that was exactly the case with Chelsea before the international break. They have a lot of injured players at the moment, but Chelsea’s squad is massive and they should be able to cope. Leicester City 1-2 Chelsea.”
Commenting on the Watford vs Man United match, Merson said, “They will beat Watford and move on, but will they beat Villarreal? I don’t think so. Even a draw guarantees them qualification, but they aren’t going to win the UEFA Champions League, are they?
“I think Manchester United will win here and rather comfortably. That said, I predict it to be a harder game than what was the case against Tottenham Hotspur, believe it or not. Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani have done well together upfront and could once again be chosen to lead the line by Solskjaer. Watford 1-3 Manchester United.”
Speaking on the Liverpool vs Arsenal game, Merson said, “I’ve said since the start of the season that if Arsenal keep their starting XI fit, they can get top four. Judging by the aspirations of the two clubs, a draw would be good for Arsenal, while Liverpool will be unhappy with it as they are trying to win the Premier League. However, I predict the two sides will share the spoils at Anfield. Liverpool 1-1 Arsenal.”
On the Man City vs Everton fixture, Merson said, “Everton are struggling at the moment and are stuck in a bit of a rut. Ahead of this game, I can’t see anything other than a Manchester City win and I expect them to score a few goals as well. They are still amongst the best sides in the country and are once again gunning for the Premier League title, so they should be winning games like this.
“That said, I still think Chelsea are title favorites, at the moment at least. Manchester City play a false #9 at times and I’m not sure if I like that, as ultimately, the absence of a reliable #9 will come back to haunt them. Manchester City 3-0 Everton.”
